Quinoa is a simple seed and is classified as a Pseudo-grain, rather than a true cereal grain. If you are looking for a simple and tasty addition to your meal, it is a very versatile food. It can be eaten hot or cold, sweet or salty. Quinoa is gluten free, high in protein, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous and iron. This is one of my favorite dinner versions. Bon Appétit!
Boil 2 cups of clean water and add 1 cup of Quinoa with a pinch of salt.
Cook on medium to low heat, covered. Stir occasionally as it cooks quickly in about 10 – 15 minutes.
In a separate pan heat 1 tbsp. coconut oil and add the following finely chopped veggies:
2 garlic cloves
3 celery stalks
1 large carrot
1 cup of broccoli flowerets
Sauté lightly to heat through and soften the onion. Mix the veggies with the quinoa and enjoy! This makes enough to feed a family of four.
